why not python huh? what is the problem with python?

Python is not good for CP since it is slow.

It also has good support for very large numbers which encourages people to solve certain arithmetic related problems in the wrong way (you get TLE).

Python gives less control over the system memory it consumes (unlike c/cpp), a side-metric on which CP performance is measured.


Probably you don't use python then. Every Judge has a 5x multiplier for python. And yes you can also control the memory in python. Don't discourage people for using python.
